Quick story is, I was unboxing 5 games, so I stopped paying attention and threw out the radio-operator, see-through sheets.

My idea is to buy a couple plexiglass sheets from Home Depot. Does anyone have any better solutions or a confirmation that the markers will write/erase on the plexiglass?

Thanks!

I can't see why they wouldn't work on plexiglass but just to make sure I tested them on the plexiglass sheets I have lying around here.

The markers and the erasers work perfectly well on those.

You could also contact the publisher, explain the situation, and see if you can buy the sheets...

I agree with this. I have contacted publishers three or four times about missing parts (not publishers fault), and have always received replacements. Once the publisher (Z-Man, before Asmodee bought them)didn't even charge me even though it was not their problem.

I can also verify that plexiglass works quite well. In fact, using wet erase markers on the plexiglass keeps one from accidentally erasing what you've written on it.

You can buy transparency sheets at office supply stores that are used with overhead projectors.

Yeah I wouldn't have thought they were hard to get, and a bit more easy to use than a sheet of plexiglass!
